Diabetes has become one of the major global health concerns, affecting more than 537 million adults worldwide. In India alone, 77 million adults suffer from Type 2 Diabetes and nearly 25 million are pre-diabetic. The ever-increasing reach of diabetes has made the need for its management very important. Primarily, diabetes management has three major aspects: diet, exercise and lifestyle. With so many different things to consider, managing diabetes on your own can seem like an uphill task. This is where Apollo 24|7's 12- Week EMPOWER Programme comes in. Read on to learn more about this programme and how it can help you manage your condition.

Why Choose The Apollo 24|7 Diabetes Management Programme?

The 12- Week EMPOWER Programme by Apollo 24|7 has been carefully designed to address the emotional, psychological, nutritional and physical health concerns of Pre-Diabetics and Type 2 Diabetics. The goal is to empower them to manage their condition themselves. Following are some of the many reasons why this programme is the best choice for you:

1. It helps you move from a curative approach to managing their condition using a preventive approach, over 12 weeks.

2. Empower is a convenient, completely digital offering. You do not need to visit the hospital even once, as a part of this programme.

3. It enables you to get guidance from highly qualified and experienced health experts regarding various aspects of diabetes management. With the help of expert guidance, you would be able to manage diabetes independently.

3. The programme provides you with access to a variety of customised tools and a powerful support system to assist you in overcoming all challenges you face on your journey of diabetes management.

What Is The 12-week Empower Programme All About?

‘Lifestyle Change’ sounds like hard work, doesn’t it? We are here to make that as easy as it gets.

  1. As mentioned earlier, you don’t ever have to go to the hospital. Three medical experts (Nutrition Expert or ‘Health Coach’, Physical Fitness Expert or ‘Fitness Coach’ and a Lifestyle Expert or ‘Habit Coach’) will guide you from the comfort of your home.
  2. These experts (your coaches) will start with a detailed assessment and help you set achievable goals.
  3. The video/audio consultations that follow are all about sharing in-depth knowledge. To start with, you get to understand your condition better. Then, you get step-by-step guidance to help introduce changes in your lifestyle. You also get tips to help change your habits easily. 
  4. You always have the option to consult your coaches using the chat feature as well.
  5. You are given the proper tools to achieve your goals. These include personalised diet and activity plans and habit coach recommendations to help you stick to these plans.

This programme is only and only for those managing Type 2 Diabetes with lifestyle changes and medication.
